In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series, the stakes have never been higher and the chemistry has never been hotter. Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.
When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself—can save the planet.
But those who seek the mythic Song—Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada—must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.
Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.

Once again, Karen Marie Moning has captivated me with her impeccable writing!
I was lost in this installment to the point where upon finishing Feverborn, it took me awhile to get back to reality instead of the Fever series world.
Now onto the review!
Feverborn starts off right where Burned ended so you can already imagine that the plot picks up very quickly. Boy, does it ever. It was as though our favorite characters and the plot were always in action. Now I should warn you that Feverborn was primarily Mac’s book just like Burned. However, unlike in Burned, we get enough Jada/Dani to also consider Feverborn her book as well. So do not worry Jada/Dani fans! You’ll get plenty scenes from her POV which I’m sure you will love especially the scenes with Ryodan. Although I think my favorite scenes were the ones where we saw glimpses of Dani especially in the last couple of chapters.
Overall, I though Feverborn was another wonderful installment to the Fever series! My only complain would be the ending which I’m sure most of you will not be surprised to know that it ends in a cliffhanger. So beware readers of a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting the next installment.
Now for the long wait for book 9, Feversong, to begin.
